With the U.S. military phase-out in question for Afghanistan, and Kim Jong-il threatening to nuke the world, waking up to Anderson Cooper Sunday mornings can be a reeaaaal bummer for me.

That’s why I thank God EVERY DAY for Kanye West!

Kanye unveiled a new set of diamond teeth on the Ellen Degeneres show, bringing on a whole new meaning to Colgate bright.

You go girl with your ghetto-fabulous self! Jersey Shore’s got nothin’ on you.

No news on how Kanye plans to eat with his new teeth, but I’ll be scavenging US Weekly for photos of him trying desperately to chew on some Juicy Fruit.

In the meantime, Kanye, keep sticking your well-pedicured foot in your mouth.
